Hello and welcome to the Official Steemit Profile Pic Challenge!
Our mission! As we are all aware or will come to realise things work a little bit differently around here on steemit. I kinda think of steemit as a decentralized social chat that promotes block-chain tech, crypto currency, creativity and loads of unbound enthusiasm among its fans. We are free to express ourselves as free individuals and are rewarded to simply be genuine and truly express ourselves.
However I cant help but wonder if we, the steemit population were to have designated profile pics and possibly a little interesting info about ourselves what would we look like? What would we share? What profile picture madness would be taking place amount the steemit crowd of unfolding enthusiasm? I don't know about you but I cant help but wonder.....Mmmmmm this could be fun!
How it works?: Actually more like guide lines really :-)
To keep things all tidy lets reply either here on this thread or " Submit a new Story " and do our custom profile on a new post possibly under the " introducing yourself " #tag for example. If you select a new post please come back here and share your Profile Pic Challenge with us. Got it? Simple enough I hope :-)
Included in my tutorial below you will find a simple example of how to display a basic profile pic and some basic info about yourself on steemit using what we call
Markdown Language Don't worry its real easy I promise!. Included below is a simple Markup Language Template I have created to help get you started. Simply copy and paste the code then fill in your profile image link and basic info. There are no real rules here, most importantly post your profile pic and have fun lets keep things creative shall we... Most importantly please remember this is mostly just for fun and my contribution to the community really :-)
Below is my idea of what a basic steemit profile template should look like. Also you will find the
markup template below that may be simply copied to your clipboard and used to setup your own custom profile fast and easy. Please note you can obviously get creative and add or remove fields, content ect.... The sky is the limmit! Also consider saving your custom profile to a text doc so in future you may simply add it to a new post or comment at will as a simple extended profile for example.
